Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has praised the management of Brendan Rodgers at Swansea City.

United host Swansea on Sunday.

Ferguson said: "They have had a fantastic season. They look as if they are enjoying their game. They all want the ball and want to play.

"When you talk about how you pick manager of the year, there always has to be a consideration about the resources.

"Brendan Rodgers came out of the Championship and only brought two players in, Danny Graham from Watford and Gylfi Sigurdsson from Germany, and even that was not for a big financial outlay.

"He stuck by the players who got them into the Premier League and they have rewarded him."
